Why CWF is supporting a group of ‘digital angels’ determined to connect Slovakia
There is an organisation in Central Europe the consumerwatchfoundation.com is supporting as part of our campaigning remit – Digital Angels.
This how it describes itself – ‘deflecting pain is a prime function of Digital Angels’.
What Digital Angels does is recycle unwanted company computers and passes them on to good causes in the east of Slovakia – usually schools and under Privileged families.
It’s distribution network involves Addy Akram – SNV c/o Local Council, Eric Wiltsher – Poprad c/o Radio Tatras International , Freddie Venables – c/o New Country Flooring, Martin Kitchings – c/o LDP LDP-Online … Contact should be made through http://bbcslovakia.uk/
The latest recipients of a refurbished laptop are two teenagers who last their father to an inoperable brain tumour.
Their father had promised them a laptop to help with their studies and homework. Digital Angels were asked to help make that promise come true.
Matej Szabo , aged 15, said: “Thank you, this is a wonderful treat, I don’t know what to say”.
Dr Jan Telensky, Patron of Digital Angels, said,
“I am so proud to support Digital Angels and the great work they do.
“Nothing can detract from the pain of losing a parent. However, the team at Digital Angels are constantly trying to make life move forward for others.”
Digital Angels receives used computers from all of Dr Telensky’s UK companies – they are assessed and serviced at the studios of RTI (Radio Tatras International).
Digital Angels has already, in Slovakia, created computer labs, including one at a teenage orphanage, kitted out infant schools, mature learning centres for the unemployed and those that just need help.
Everyone involved in the project donates their time & skills. Digital Angel would like to thank everyone involved and particularly Dr Telensky for his patronage and donations of working computers.
